(Signed) R. B. Upham, Honorable Mayor and City Council of the City of

[Signatures appended as stated.] Gentlemen— The State law requires that the City 
Comptroller 

Estimates of Revenues and Expenditures for the "shall before the first day of December of each 

Y iQQi year, before the annual appropriations to be made 

rear ^.^^^ Council . . . submit to the City 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- Council ... a report of his estimates, as nearly

as may be. of moneys necessary to defray the 
expenses of the corporation during the current 
fiscal year. He shall, in said report, class the 
different objects and branches of expenditures, 
giving, as nearly as may be, the amount required 
for each; ... he shall, in such report, show 
the aggregate income of the preceding fiscal year, 
from all sources, the amount of liabilities out- 
standing upon which interest is to be paid, the 
bonds and debts payable during the year, when 
due and when payable; and in such report he 
shall give such other information to the Council 
... as he may deem necessary, to the end that 
the City Council . . .may fully understand the 
money exigencies and demands upon the cor- 
poration for the current year." 

It appears, at the present writing, that the total 
amount of necessary appropriations for City govern- 
ment to maintain not more than a mere semblance 
of public service, insofar as the Corporate Pur- 
poses Fund is concerned, does not, by any means, 
balance with the resources we can now estimate 
will be available from various sources during the 
year 1934. The chaotic conditions now prevailing 
in regard to the question of the assessed valuations 
of 1931, 1932, 1933 and 1934, and the question of 
loss and cost in the collection of taxes, cause the 
Comptroller to believe that the sensible thing to do 
at this time is to merely comply with the legal re- 
quirements of submitting a report of the appro- 
priations he deems necessary for 1934, before De- 
cember 1, 1933, with the understanding that the 
usual printed . copies of Departmental and Comp- 
troller's Estimates will be submitted at a later date 
to the City Council, after opportunity has been had 
for this ofiice to secure more reliable information 
in regard to the resources that can reasonably be 
estimated for the year 1934 for Corporate Purposes, 
in order that the Committee on Finance of the City 
Council will have before it reliable information that 
will enable it to prepare a more sensible and ade- 
quate budget than they could if an attempt was not 
made to prepare a budget based upon uncertainties. 

The Comptroller, therefore, submits to the City 
Council herewith the Departmental Estimates of the 
different departments of City government, showing 
Comptroller's recommendations of appropriations as 
"his estimates of the moneys necessary to defray 
the expenses of the corporation during the current 
fiscal year" from the Corporate Fund, Water Fund, 
A^ehicle Tax Fund and Sinking Funds of the City, 
realizing at the same time that these recommen- 
dations of appropriations for Corporate Purposes 
may later have to be seriously reduced by the Com- 
mittee before a balanced Corporate budget can be 
had for the 1934 Appropriation Bill. Also find 
hereto attached, as a part of this report, state- 
ments showing the "aggregate income of the fiscal 
year of 1933, from all sources, the amount of 
liabilities outstanding upon which interest is to be 
paid" and bonds and debts to be paid during 1934. 

Also find hereto attached separate balance sheets 
for the Corporate Fund, Water Fund, Vehicle Tax 
Fund, etc., showing the estimated current assets and 
liabilities of each such fund at the beginning of 
the year 1934, and the amount of assets available 
for appropriations in such year, either for expendi- 
ture or charges to be made or incurred during the 
vear 1934 or for liabilities unpaid at the beginning 
of 1934. 

The estimates shown on the Corporate Purposes 
Fund Balance Sheet are based upon very vague in- 
formation as to what may transpire in the future, 
but. as stated in the foregoing paragraphs of this 



communication, most of the factors entering into 
this estimate insofar as resources are concerned, 
should be subject to change in the near future 
when essential information has become less hazy 
than it is now. 

In order to show the dilfieulty of avoiding the 
present indicated reduction in the amounts to be 
appropriated for the various vital services of the 
City, such as police and fire protection, street and 
alley cleaning, waste and garbage disposal, street 
lighting, health protection and including Corporate 
Fund debt service obligations, which cannot be re- 
duced under any circumstances, and the services of 
the Municipal Courts and Election Commissioners, 
which have mandatory powers to demand appro- 
priations, the Comptroller calls attention to the 
fact that these particular services require over 80 
per cent of the annual budget. This 80 per cent 
does not include the administrative activities of 
other departments that must be provided for in 
order for these vital functions to be carried on. 

Therefore, an attempt to make any serious re- 
ductions in the Corporate budget at this time could 
have no other effect but to make it necessary to 
invade these primary purposes of government to 
such a serious degree as to actually become dan- 
gerous. This is especially so when we consider the 
tremendous reductions that have been made in the 
Corporate Purposes Fund appropriations within the 
last few years, including the large savings made by 
the present administrations since April of this year, 
and the fact that in many cases barely a skeleton 
organization remains in what would be considered 
by all citizens as a vital necessity, if government is 
to continue on a reasonable basis of activity. 

The Comptroller will endeavor to have, at an 
early date, in the hands of the City Council, the 
printed copies of the proposed budget, showing the 
Comptroller's recommendations of appropriations 
that will make a balanced budget. 

The Comptroller, therefore, requests the City 
Council to bear with him, until more definite in- 
formation can be secured in regard to the vital 
factors controlling appropriations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) R. B. Upham, 

Comptroller. 

Submission of Bids for Deposits of City and School 
Funds for the Year 1934. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the City Comptroller, which was, 
together with the bids and list of banks submitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Finance:

Chicago, December 4, 1933.] 

To the Honorable, tlie Mayor and Aldermen in City 
Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with Section 5 of Part 
Two of Article XII of "An Act to provide for the 
Incorporation of Cities and Villages", requiring the 
City Comptroller to advertise for bids from regularly 
established national and state banks, for interest 
upon the money of the City so deposited in the said 
banks, and in pursuance of the ordinances passed 
thereunder, and in accordance with Sections 128 
to 139 of the Otis Act passed in 1917: advertisement 
was made for bids for interest on average daily

balances, for interest on money of the City and 
School funds (including Special Deposits) as may 
be deposited and permitted to remain without di- 
minution for periods of at least 30, 60, or 90 days; 
and from such banks as can qualify under the ordi- 
nances of the City as Active Banks for the fiscal 
year 1934 for interest which they will pay on the 
average daily balances, to be computed and paid 
in the same way as on City and School moneys de^ 
posited in any such bank if the same is designated 
as an Active Bank, such bid and the rate offered to 



be separate and distinct from the rate of interest 
which such bank will pay on time deposits. 

In accordance with ordinance passed October 25, 
1933, "Council Journal", p. 953, the Comptroller sent 
copy of advertisement to all banks having a capital 
stock and surplus of $1,000,000, situated in the 
Federal Reserve cities of a population of 500,000, 
which banks are shown in list submitted herewith. 
No bids were received from banks outside the city, 
and the following bids from Chicago banks were 
opened December 4, 1933, at 11 o'clock A. M. :

pany of Chicago Average Daily Balances %%

The bids are submitted herewith. 

Taking into consideration the low rate bid, which 
evidently is due to the uncertain conditions existing 
at the present time, the Comptroller would suggest 
that if it can be done legally, the City Council con- 
tract with these banks as City depositaries at the 
rate bid only for the first quarter of the year, with 
the understanding that if the law so permits bids 
would be taken subsequent to the first quarter of 
1934 if a higher rate of interest is anticipated.

In the Matter of a Proposed 15% Reduction in the 
Assessed Valuation, for the Year 1931, of Cer- 
tain Types of Residential Buildings, Etc. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department op Law,| 
Chicago, December 6, 1933.j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At the meeting of your honorable 
body on November 28, 1933 a resolution was adopted 
in which reference is made to proceedings pending 
in the county court of Cook county in behalf of the 
county collector for judgment and order of sale of 
certain real estate for default in payment of the 
taxes levied for the year 1931. Objection to the 
entry of such judgment has been made in behalf 
of numerous persons owning certain classes of real 
estate commonly known as single family residences 
and two and three flat buildings upon the ground 
that the assessor has discriminated against this 
• class of property in making up the assessment on 
real property for that year (see council journal, 
page 1132). The board of appeals ordered a fifteen 
per cent reduction in the valuation of all buildings 
of this class. The state tax commission approved 
the action of the board of appeals but the supreme 
court held that the order of the board of appeals 
was void. In the proceedings before the county 
court above referred to those who have filed their 
objection are seeking to obtain for themselves what 
the board of appeals sought to accomplish for all 
property owners of the same class. 

The resolution in effect declares that the objection 
made by the taxpayers is well-founded and directs 
the corporation counsel to appear in the county 
court and argue in favor of the reduction so that 
justice may be done. 

The faet that compliance with the order con- 
tained in the resolution may have dangerous con- 
sequences to the city and will tend to embarrass me 
professionally impels me respectfully to request a 
reconsideration of the resolution to afford me the 
opportunity of discussing with you the propriety 
of my participation in the litigation in the county 
court in the manner proposed. 

It is impossible for me to submit in this com- 
munication all of the reasons for reconsideration of 
this subject but I may state here briefly some of the 
things which should be borne in mind. 

The resolution declares : 

"1. That the smaller type of dwellings, enu- 
merated above, have been over-taxed ever since 
the reassessment of 1928, which is evidenced by 
the fact that this class of property was the bene- 
ficiary of a reduction of only 9% in assessed 
valuation as compared with the assessment of 
1927, larger type properties, however, being the 
beneficiaries of reductions which ranged from 
25% to 40% in various classes. 

"2. That the basic system of levying assess- 
ments continued and, in the years 1929, 1930 and 
1931, this same injustice has been done to these 
smaller properties." 

At the time the county collector made his appli- 
cation for judgment and order of sale on account 
of delinquent taxes for the years 1928, 1929 and 
1930 an attack participated in by many thousands 



of taxpayers was made on the assessments of those 
years. The attack involved so large a proportion 
of the taxes for the years in question tha't it pre- 
cipitated what is frequently referred to as a "tax 
strike", and the corporation counsel deemed it nec- 
essary to the very continuity, safety and stability 
of government that he should participate actively 
in the litigation on behalf of the city of Chicago. 
A brief was filed in the county court defining the 
city's position. Later on when the county collector 
prosecuted his appeal from the judgment of the 
county court, which was docketed in the Supreme 
Court of Illinois as People v. Lillian Cesar, this 
office filed a separate brief in the case urging a 
reversal of the judgment of the county court. After 
the Supreme Court of Illinois had reversed the 
judgment of the county court a review was sought 
by the objector in the Supreme Court of the United 
States and this ofiice filed a brief in opposition to 
the petition for such, review. 

Our position throughout that long litigation was 
that the assessments of real property in Cook county 
for 1928 and 1929 were fairly, reasonably and 
scientifically made and that the findings of the 
county court on December 31, 1931 as to assessments 
of real property for the year 1928 supported our 
position. This argument was consistently made by 
this department on behalf of the city throughout 
the proceedings in the county court, in the Supreme 
Court of Illinois and in the Supreme Court of the 
United States in the Cesar case and was also urged 
by the state's attorney in the Bistor case. By the 
declarations in the resolution of the city council I 
am now asked to reverse my position and that of 
the city and to take the stand that the 1931 assess- 
ment continued basically the perpetration of a fraud 
against certain real estate owners in the reassess- 
ment of the year 1928 concerning which I had pre- 
viously argued that it was valid and must be sus- 
tained. 

Moreover, the assessment of 1931 being a quad- 
rennial assessment the time may come when in or- 
der to sustain the city's tax levies for the years 
1931, 1932, 1933 and 1934 it may be necessary for 
me again to urge upon the courts that the 1931 tax 
assessment was not fraudulent in any respect. I 
cannot change my position in that iQanner without 
stultifying myself and the courts would not look 
with favor upon such change of attitude to meet 
the exigencies of each occasion as it arises. 

The position which the corporation counsel is 
required by the resolution to take in my opinion 
is incompatible with his official duty as the city's 
legal representative and his action might be con- 
strued as an olTicial waiver of substantial rights 
of the city. The city of Chicago is not a party to 
the proceeding before the county court and the ap- 
pearance of the corporation counsel for the purpose 
of making the kind of an argument which the reso- 
lution directs him to make in effect would amount 
to an advocacy of the interests of the objectors in- 
stead of the interests of the city. 

Respectfully submitted,

Corporation Counsel.

CHICAGO AERO COMMISSION. 



Recommendation with Reference to Rental of Airplane 
Hangar Sites at the Municipal Airport. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Chicago Aero Commission, which 
was referred to the Committee on Recreation and Avia- 
tion: 

Chicago Aero Commission,) 
Chicago, December 1, 1933. j 

RECOMiMENDATION OF CHICAGO AERO COMJMISSION WITH 
REFERENCE TO RENTAL OP AIRPLANE HANGAR SITES 
ON THE CHICAGO MUNICIPAL AIRPORT. 

To His Honor, the Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
and the Members of the Common Council, City of 
Chicago: 

Your Commission, after extensive study, both on 
the part of the whole Commission and of two sub- 
committees thereof, do recommend that no increase 
in the rental charged by the City of Chicago to 
lessors on the Chicago Municipal Airport be con- 
templated at this time. 

It is also recommended that a study should be 
made of the probable necessity for a decrease in the 
rental on hangar sites, as the time grows shorter 
on any new leases which will of necessity expire 
in 1950. 

From the above conclusion and recommendation 
of your commission it is apparent that the gross 
income of the Chicago Municipal Airport for some 
years to come will be less than the maintenance 
and upkeep costs, although the spread between 
these figures should be reduced with the continued 
development of the airport and a full utilization of 
all income possibilities. All sources of probable in- 



come, consistent with sound and efRcient operation 
on the airport, should be studied and utilized 
wherever possible. One source of income suggested 
is the granting of a passenger carrying concession 
to one or more responsible, insured, operators, for 
a flat fee per passenger or on a commission basis. 

In the opinion of your commission the continued 
support of the Chicago Municipal Airport is un- 
questionably justified and necessitated for many 
sound reasons: 

1. The rental of airport sites at a low figure, 
which without precedent at the time, and de- 
signed specifically to be an inducement, has at- 
tracted to the Chicago Municipal Airport some of 
the largest operators of air transportation. At 
the time these sites were originally offered for 
rent, the figure quoted was designed to secure 
the position of Chicago as the Air Transportation 
center of the country. The operators were offered 
a rental of $250.00 per year per lot, and induced 
to make a considerable investment based on this 
rental. It was explained that while the lease 
could only be made for a period of, at that time, 
a little less than 10 years, subsequently it would 
be possible to clarify the situation existing be- 
tween the City of Chicago and the Board of 
Education so that the operators would be justified 
in expecting a longer tenancy, and no mention 
was made of the requirement, which has since 
been imposed upon the operators, that title to 
the improvements passed to the City of Chicago 
at the expiration of the period of the lease. 

2. The location in Chicago of air line termi- 
nals and repair shops has brought a large num- 
ber of employees who receive and spend sub- 
stantial payrolls in Chicago. These shops could 
have been located at other points on the air lines 
involved at much lower rentals than those being 
charged in Chicago. 

3. The ambitious desire of Chicago citizens 
that their city become the air transportation 
center of America has been realized largely be- 
cause of its original offer of fair rental policy 

I for hangar space. Any attempt to make the 
operators pay the entire cost of airport upkeep 
and maintenance would undoubtedly result in re- 

f tarding this important development or in divert- 
ing present activities to localities where greater 

r civic appreciation could and would be shown. 

4. The present development of air trans- 
portation is not such that the operators can pay 
ground rentals sufficient to cover the upkeep and 

f maintenance costs of a modern airport. 

''^ 5. The airport, landing space, runways, light- 
ing, and terminal facilities are open to all air- 
craft regardless of whether or not they are based 
in the hangars occupying rental lots upon the 
airport. The tenants of the airport therefore 

" should not be expected to support fully the 
facilities which of their very nature cannot be 
exclusively granted to them. 

6. The cost of utilization of the airport and 
airport sites at a nominal rental by military or 
national defense organizations should not be 
chargeable to the rent paying tenants in Chicago 
any more than they are in other localities enjoy- 
ing the location of these activities. 

7. The rentals charged are comparable with, 
or higher than, the rental charges at other repre- 
sentative airports in the major cities of the 
United States. In addition to the rental charges, 
the tenants on the Chicago Municipal Airport are 



December 6, 1933. 



COMiMUNIGATIONS, ETC.

being forced to convey title to their property a*t 
the expiration of the term of the lease. This 
necessitates a materially larger amortization on 
the investment involved in improvements and also 
conveys to the City improvements of great value 
which in most cases were not originally intended 
to pass to the City at the expiration of the lease. 
Giving effect to the City's acquisition of title in 
improvements, the return on the Chicago Munici- 
pal Airport is today much higher than any other 
rental in the United States, and the sums accruing 
to the City are probably far in excess of the 
costs of maintenance and upkeep. 

8. The maintenance of the airport partially at 
public expense is founded on the sound precedent 
in the maintenance of docking and wharf facilities 
for marine transportation, including the operation 
and maintenance of life bridges. 

9. The value of superlative transportation has 
been one of the sources of Chicago's greatness 
and the encouragement of continued development 
of Chicago as the Air Transportation center of 
America is, and will continue to bring inestimable 
benefits to the business interest of our city. 

10. The air mail service on the Chicago Muni- 
cipal Airport is alone of sufficient importance to 
the taxpayers of Chicago to warrant the continued 
maintenance of the airport on its present or a 
more encouraging basis to the operators of the 
air mail service. 

H. The rapid development of air line passenger 
traffic into the city, because of good terminal 
facilities, means much in added revenue and con- 
venience to Chicago's business and taxpayers. The 
efforts of the air mail operators to develop this 
phase of their business to help bear the cost of the 
air mail service which has been so seriously cur- 
tailed, is to be commended and encouraged by the 
city. 

12. The growing importance of air express to 
Chicago's wholesale and retail merchants, is suffi- 
cient justification for the city to bear its present 
or an increased proportion of the maintenance and 
upkeep costs. 

The foregoing reasons are presented in support 
of our recommendation made herein. 

Your Commission desires to commend the Mayor, 
the members of the Common Council, and the Com- 
missioner of Public Works, for their energetic activi- 
ties toward relieving the oppressive tax burden on 
our citizens, but fully realize that our recommenda- 
tion is justified in that the development of the air- 
port and the City of Chicago as the center of Air 
Transportation, would be seriously retarded if the 
airport tenants are required to pay a rental sufficient 
to cover maintenance and upkeep costs of this great 
airport. Continued development of the airport, car- 
rying with it the manifold advantages enumerated 
to the city, will serve in a great measure to increase 
the value of business in this city subject to tax for 
corporate purposes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Chicago Aero Commission.

Chairman.

Addenda: The foregoing recommendation of the 
Chicago Aero Commission is the final supplement to 
a sub-committee report of the commission dated 
September 25, 1933.

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending the passage of an ordinance submitted 
therewith authorizing the issuance and sale or exchange 
of Series "A" Refunding Bonds of 1934, in the amount 
of $5,300,000, and levying taxes for the payment of the 
principal thereof and interest thereon. 

Alderman Clark moved to concur in said report and 
to pass said ordinance. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 



thereon until the next regular meeting, and. the ques- 
tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows:

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

AN ORDINANCE 

Authorizing the issuance and sale or exchange of 
$5,300,000.00 Refunding Bonds of 1934, Series 
"A", of the City of Chicago, and providing for 
the levy of taxes for payment thereof. 

Whereas, The City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law, its interest bear- 
ing bonds for Corporate Purposes, described as to 
purpose for which issued, number and principal 
amount due January 1, 1934, as follows: 



Nos. of Bonds Principal Amount 

Purpose for Which Issued to be Refunded Due January 1, 1934 

General Corporate, Series 1930 4501/7000 $2,500,000.00 

Judgment Funding, Series 1919 M 6001/6500 500,000.00 

Pubic Benefit, Series 1930 1701/3000 1,300,000.00 

Revolving Fund Bond, Series 1930 1701/2700 1,000,000.00 



$5,300,000.00 



and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
at maturity thereof, and due to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook 
County and the economic distress prevailing, pay- 
ment of all taxes has been unduly delayed so that 
money for the payment of the principal of said 
bonds in the amount of $5,300,000.00 as aforesaid 
is not and will not be available on January 1, 1934, 
although at the time said bonds were authorized 
provision was made for the collection of sufficient 
taxes to meet such payments; and 

Whereas, Said bonds in the amount of 
$5,300,000.00 were authorized for proper Corporate 
purposes and sold and the proceeds received by the 
City of Chicago and said bonds now constitute out- 
standing legal indebtedness of said City and there 
will be available money sufiicient to pay the in- 



terest coupons upon said bonds that become due on 
January 1, 1934, but not enough money to pay the 
principal sums which will accrue and be payable 
on said date, owing to the delay in the collection of 
taxes for the year 1931, and in order to preserve 
the credit of the City of Chicago, it is necessary 
that the City of Chicago authorize, issue and sell 
its bonds to supply means to meet said maturing 
bonds or authorize and issue its bonds in a like 
par amount in place of said bonds so maturing on 
January 1, 1934; now, therefore. 
Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Segt'ion 1. For the purpose of refunding the 
principal of maturing bonds of the City of Chicago 
in the amount of $5,300,000.00 as described in the 
preamble hereof and as follows :

and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
at maturity thereof, and due to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook County 
and the economic distress prevailing, payment of all 
taxes has been unduly delayed so that money for the 
payment of the principal of said bonds in the amount 
of "$2,000,000.00, as aforesaid, is not and will not be 
available on January 1, 1934, although at the time

the collection of sufficient taxes to meet such pay- 
ments; and 

Whereas, Said bonds in the amount of $2,000,- 
000.00 were authorized for proper Corporate pur- 
poses and sold and the proceeds received by the City 
of Chicago and said bonds now constitute outstanding 
legal indebtedness of said City and there will be 
available money sufficient to pay the interest cou- 



pons upon said bonds that become due on January 
1, 1934, but not enough money to pay the principal 
sums which will accrue and be payable on said date, 
owing to the delay in the collection of taxes for the 
year 1931, and in order to preserve the credit of the 
City of Chicago, it is necessary that the City of 
Chicago authorize, issue and sell its bonds to supply 
means to meet said maturing bonds or authorize and 
issue its bonds in a like par amount in place of said 
bonds so maturing on January 1, 1934; now, there-

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending the passage of an ordinance submitted 
therewith authorizing the issuance and sale or exchange 
of Series "C" Refunding Bonds of 1934, in the amount 
of $1,000,000, and levying taxes for the payment of the 
principal thereof and interest thereon. 

Alderman Clark moved to concur in said report and 
to pass said ordinance. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows:

ORDINANCE 

Authorizing the issuance and sale or exchange of 
$1,000,000.00 Refunding Bonds of 1934, Series "G", 
of the City of Chicago and providing for the levy 
of taxes for payment thereof. 

Whereas, The City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law, its interest bear- 
ing bonds for Corporate Purposes described as to 
purpose for which issued, number and principal 
amount due January 1, 1934, as follows:

and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
at maturity thereof, and due to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook County 
and the economic distress prevailing, payment of all 
taxes has been unduly delayed so that money for the 
payment of the principal of said bonds in the amount 
of $1,000,000.00 as aforesaid is not and will not be 



available on January 1, 1934, although at the time 
said bonds were authorized provision was made for 
the collection of sufficient taxes to meet such pay- 
ments; and

cipal sums which will accrue and be payable on

tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows: 

Yeas — Goughlin, Jackson, Cronson, Cusack, Healy,

ORDilNANCE 

Authorizing the issuance and sale or exchange of 
$1,700,000.00 Refunding Bonds of 1934. Series "D", 
of the City of Chicago, and providing for the levy 
of taxes for payment thereof. 
Whereas, The City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law, its interest bearing 
bonds for Corporate Purposes, described as to pur- 
pose for which issued, number and principal amount 
due January 1, 1934, as follows:

and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
at maturity thereof, and due -to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook County 
and the economic distress prevailing, payment of all 
taxes has been unduly delayed so that money for the 
payment of the principal of said bonds in the amount 
of $1,700,000.00 as aforesaid is not and will not be 
available on January 1, 1934, although at the time 
said bonds were authorized provision M^as made for 
the collection of sufficient taxes to meet such pay- 
ments; and 

Whereas. Said bonds in the amount of 
$1,700,000.00 were authorized for proper Corporate 
Purposes and sold and the proceeds received by the 
City of Chicago and said bonds now constitute out- 
standing legal indebtedness of said City and there 
will be available money sufficient to pay the interest 



coupons upon said bonds that become due on Janu- 
ary 1, 1934, but not enough money to pay the prin- 
cipal sums which will accrue and be payable on said 
date, owing to the delay in the collection of taxes 
for the year 1931, and in order to preserve the credit 
of the City of Chicago, it is necessary that the City 
of Chicago authorize, issue and sell its bonds to sup- 
ply means to meet said maturing bonds or authorize 
and issue its bonds in a like par amount in place of 
said bonds so maturing on January 1, 1934; now, 
therefore, 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of maturing bonds of the City of Chicago in the 
amount of $1,700,000.00, as described in the pre- 
amble hereof and as follows :

and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
at maturity thereof, and due to delay in fixing the 
valuation of taxable property in and for Cook 
County and the economic distress prevailing, pay- 
ment of all taxes has been unduly delayed so that 
money fo^ the payment of the principal of said 
bonds in the amount of $5,000,000.00 as aforesaid 
IS not and will not be available on January 1, 1934, 
although at the time said bonds were authorized 
provision was made for the collection of sufficient 
taxes to meet such payments; and 

Where.'VS, Said bonds in the amount of 
$5 000,000.00 were authorized for proper Corporate 
purposes and sold and the proceeds received by the 
City of Chicago and srxid bonds now constitute out- 
standing legal indebtedness of said City and there 
will be available money sufficient to pay the in- 
terest coupons upon said bonds that become due on 



January 1, 1934, but not enough money to pay the 
principal sums which will accrue and be payable 
on said date, owing to the delay in the collection of 
taxes for the year 1931, and in order to preserve 
the credit of the City of Chicago, it is necessary 
that the City of Chicago authorize, issue and sell its 
bonds to supply means to meet said maturing bonds 
or authorize and issue its bonds in a like par 
amount in place of said bonds so maturing on 
January 1, 1934; now, therefore, 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the 
principal of maturing bonds of the City of Chicago 
in the amount of $5,000,000.00 as described in the

m certain instances requires that work be done 
on private property; and 

Whereas, Neither of the above organizations 
will consent to assume responsibility of liability 
for personal injury or property damage, which 
may result while carrying on the above activities; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City assumes the responsi- 
bility of liability for personal injury or properly

By the Northwest Real Estate Board. 

Chicago, November 27, 1933. 

To the Honorable, Mayor and City Council, of the

Whereas, The members of this board are informed 
through the public press that the City Council of the

let a contract to private contractors to construct a 
water tunnel for the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, We are informed that the Ctiy of Chi-

be it 

Resolved, That we hereby register our objection to 
the letting of a private contract to do this construc- 
tion work.

times keep the surface of the alley over the said

sioner of Public Works and safe for public travel. 

Section 6. No work shall be done under the au-

granted shall be terminated, but the grantee herein 
shall, nevertheless, remain liable to the City of Chi- 
cago for the compensation due until the expiration 
or repeal of this ordinance.

Chicago, December 6, 1933. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 

We, the undersigned, a minority of your Com-

whom was referred (October 25, 1933, page 945) a 
communication from His Honor, the Mayor, recom- 
mending that the name of Crawford avenue be

December 6, 1933. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



1207 



the majority of your Committee on Local Industries, 
Streets and Alleys, changing the name of Crawford 
Avenue to "Pulaski Road", be and the same is 
hereby recommitted to your Committee on Local 
Industries, Streets and Allej's, with instructions to 
give consideration to the matter of changing the 
name of Augusta Boulevard to "Pulaski Boulevard". 

This recommendation is predicated upon the fol- 
lowing reasons : 

No. 1. We are in hearty accord with the desire 
to honor General Casimir Pulaski. The valiant 
service he rendered to this country, the personal 
fortune he spent, and the fact that he gave his life 
for our Cause at the Siege of Savannah indelibly 
fixes his name in our history as one of America's 
greatest heroes. Because General Pulaiski came 
from Poland, and there are in Chicago today more 
than four hundred thousand people of Polish ex- 
traction, many of whom are prominent in social, 
public and business life, and who form our largest 
single racial group of home owners, and peaceful 
and law-abiding citizens, is further reason for 
honoring General Pulaski. 

No. 2. We, however, believe that proper honor 
can be given to this eminent Polish-American with- 
out causing tremendous expense and inconvenience 
to the citizens living along one of o'ur longest busi- 
ness and industrial streets. Seventy-five per cent 
of the property-owners of the Crawford Avenue 
District have signed a petition protesting against 
the change of the name of Crawford Avenue, and 
fifty thousand citizens living in the Crawford Ave- 
nue District have signed a petition protesting the 
change. Resolutions have been passed by practically 
every civic and business association of prominence 
in the City of Chicago, protesting against this change. 
Among them are the following: 

Chicago Real Estate Board, 
German American Society, 
Garfield Park Business Men's Club, 
Hamilton Club, 
City Club of Chicago, 
Polish LTnion Daily Paper, 
Austin Federation of Clubs, 
West Town Chamber of Commerce, 
Chicago Historical Society, 
Illinois Manufactlirers Association. 
Federation of Women's Clubs, 
Centr.\l Manufacturing District. 

We further believe that it would be a rebuff and 
dishonor to Peter Crawford, one of Chicago's sturdy 
pioneers, and to his descendants who reside in Chi- 
cago today, to take from him the consideration that 
the City Council of years ago saw fit to give him. 

No. 3. We propose, as a substitute, that the name 
of Augusta Boulevard be changed to "Pulaski Boule- 
vard" instead of disturbing the name of Crawford 
Avenue. Augusta Boulevard is a beautiful drive- 
way which has recently been widened and paved, 
and runs from the western limits of the City, east- 
ward through Humboldt Park, and will connect with 
Ogden Avenue. It is one of the three most im- 
portant east-and-west arteries in the City of Chi- 
cago. There is very litle business or industry along 
this boulevard, and in consequence few people would 
be inconvenienced. The name Augusta has no par- 
ticular significance or associations, and the City 
Club of Chicago, who have been responsible for so 
many of the improvements of our street naming 
and numbering system, recommends the change. 

We respectfully urge the City Council to give 



consideration to the merits of this proposal as out- 
lined, and to receive this as a substitute for the 
majortiy report.

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM 
CITY OFFICERS. 



MAYOR. 



Authority for the Taking of a Census of the City 
of Chicago. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, December 12, 1933.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The last federal census, which was 
taken over three years ago, owing to the extra- 
ordinary changes in social and industrial conditions 
that have since taken place, in many respects is so 
far out of date that it is of little value for pur- 
poses of public works and public service, such as 
housing plans, school district boundaries, and like 
matters. 

It would be highly desirable to have this census 
replaced, so far as the City of Chicago is con- 
cerned, with an up to date enumeration and cor- 
relative data which will give the necessary infor- 
mation for governmental projects and the enact- 
ment of laws and ordinances in the public interest. 

The City Council is authorized by statute to pro- 
vide for the taking of a census of the City, but not 
oftener than once in three years. Such census has 
been proposed and the Federal Civil Works Ad- 
ministration has approved the project as a means 
of rendering a valuable public service and inci- 
dentally, the employment of approximately twenty- 
four hundred men and women who are now with- 
out employment. It is therefore probable that the 
proposed census can be taken without expense to 
the City of Chicago. To this end its organization 
and control can be placed in the hands of certain 
of tlie City's officers who will act as a commission 
for this purpose without extra compensation, the 
direction of the actual work to be under an expert 
census specialist who will receive proper compen- 
sation. 

With this end in 'view I requested the Cor- 
poration Counsel to prepare an ordinance authoriz- 
ing the taking of such census and providing for the 
creation of a commission for the organization and 
supervision of same. I submit herewith the tenta- 
i ive ordinance so prepared by the Corporation 



Counsel for the consideration of your honorable 
body. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelt.y, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
the ordinance submitted with the foregoing communi- 
cation without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Toman moved to pass said ordinance. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin, Dawson, Jackson, Cronson, Cusack, 
Healy, Daley, Sutton, Lindell, Rowan, Hartnett, McDer- 
mott, Kovarik, Moran, Corr, Perry, Northrup, Lagodny, 
Sonnenschein, Toman, Konkowski, Sain, Kells, Terrell, 
Clark, Keane, Rostenkowski, Kadow, Porten, Orlikoski, 
Robinson, Kiley, Wieland, Hurley, Ross, Moreland, 
Crowe, Hauler, Grealis, Meyer, Nelson, Schulz, Massen, 
Williston, Quinn — 45. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

AN ORDINANCE 

Providing for the taking of a census in the City of 
Chicago. 

Whereas. The facts and data and the enumer- 
ations of the 1930 federal census are now so far 
out of date that they are of little value for pur- 
poses of planning public works and service; and 

Whereas, It is imperative that the City of Chi- 
cago and its departments and other governmental 
bodies should have up to date facts necessary for 
governmental projects such as housing, the location 
and construction of buildings and other services in 
the public Interest; and 

Whereas, The Civil Works Administration has 
approved the proposed census of the City of Chi- 
cago as a Civil Works Administration project which 
will require over 2400 men and women now out of 
work to take over the work of supervision and 
enumeration; and 

Whereas, The laws of the State of Illinois- em- 
power the City Council to provide for the taking of 
a census; therefore. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That a census of the population of 
the City of Chicago and other data relating to same 
shall be taken in January, 1934, as a Civil Works

of the Board of Health, the Superintendent of 
Schools, the President of the Chicago Plan Com- 
mission, the Corporation Counsel, all of whom shall 
serve without extra compensation, and an expert 
census specialist to be selected by the Mayor, who 
shall receive such compensation as may be deter- 
mined by the commission. 

Section 3. The commission shall appoint the 
director of the census, whose duty it shall be to 
organize and who shall be actively engaged in 
carrying out the organization, and the taking and

not less than one dollar nor more than two hun- 
dred dollars for each offense.

tionnaire or schedule, such written answers shall 
be delivered to the director of the census within 
five days after the receipt of such questionnaire or 
schedule. Any person over eighteen years of age

corporated in published reports to be made avail- 
able to the public as said commission may direct. 

Section 8. This ordinance shall take effect and

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



In the Matter of an Additional Appropriation for 
Salaries of Certain Probation Officers. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department op Law,| 
Chicago, December 7, 1933.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Notice has been served on the in- 
dividual members of the Council that an order has 
been entered in the Circuit Court requiring them to 
show" cause on or before December 15, 1933, why 
they should not be attached for contempt of court 
for failure to comply with the order of the court 
in the case of People ex rel. Cannon vs. City of 
Chicago et al., involving the appropriation for 
parole officers. 

Under date of March 15, 1933 (Journal page 
3390) the communication of the attorney for the 



petitioners in said cause was read to the Council, 
and the members were thereby informed that the 
Supreme Court had sustained the Circuit Court and 
affirmed its order requiring the City Council to 
make an additional appropriation for such parole 
officers. Following this notice to your honorable 
body, we sent a letter under date of March 22, 
1933 (Journal page 3444) in which we advised your 
honorable body • that the case had been affirmed 
and recommended that the Council should accept 
such notice in lieu of personal service on each 
Alderman, in order to save expense. It was assumed 
that such notice, coming from two different sources, 
to the effect that the order of the Circuit Court 
was affirmed would be sufficient to advise the 
Council that the additional appropriation must be 
made. It appears, however, that no action was 
taken in the matter by your honorable body, and 
as a result of this the contempt proceedings were 
instituted. We will appear on behalf of the mem- 
bers of the Council on or before the fifteenth of 
December, but the most that we will be able to do 
under the circumstances will be to secure a little 
delay. 

We recommend that some action be taken forth- 
with by your honorable body which will indicate to 
the court that it is the intention to give heed to 
the order of court and to comply therewith at an 
early date. 

Yours truly.

In connection with the foi'^egoing communication, 
Alderman Clark, by unanimous consent, presented an 
order directing that provision be made in the annual 
appropriation ordinance for the year 1934 to fully com- 
ply with the order of the Court. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said order without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Clark moved to pass said order. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows:

mott, Kovarik, Moran, Corr, Perry, Northrup, Lagodny,

The following is said order as passed: 

Whereas, The Circuit Court of Cook County, oh' 
October 15, 1932, entered an order commanding the 
members of the City Council to make an additional 
appropriation for the payment of salaries to the 
twenty-eight probation officers appointed by the 
judges of the Municipal Court of Chicago for whom 
no appropriation for salaries had been made; and 

Whereas, The said final order of court was 
affirmed by the Supreme Court of Illinois, but the 
City Council has not up to the present time made 
such appropriation, by reason of which the said 
Circuit Court has entered an order requiring each

of the members of the City Council to show cause 
on or before December 15, 1933, why he should not 
be attached for contempt of court for failure to 
comply with the said order of October 15, 1932; 
and 

Whereas, The Committee on Finance is now en- 
o-a^ed in the preparation of the annual appro- 
priation bill for the year 1934, and it would serve 
no useful purpose and would disturb the proper 
financing of the City's budget for the current year to 
make an appropriation at this time for salaries due 
in 1932; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Committee on Finance be and 
it is hereby directed to make provision in the bud- 
get for the year 1934 for the payment of the 
salaries of the probation ofTiicers appointed by the 
Municipal Court of Chicago for the year 1932 m 
such manner that there may be a full compliance 
with the order of the Circuit Court of Cook County 
in -relation thereto and to the end that payment 
may be made to such probation officers as soon 
after January 1, 1934, as possible. 



In the Matter of a Judgment Entered in the Case of 
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. vs. City of Chicago. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the copy of the opinion transmitted there- 
with, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Law,) 
Chicago, December 8, 1933.) 

The Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

GREAT LAKES DREDGE <-i DOCK COMPANY, a Corporation, 

vs. 

CITY OF CHICAGO, a Municipal Corporation. 
Gentlemen — ^^The above entitled action is one in- 
stituted by the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Com- 
pany to recover the sum of $150,000.00 extras under 
the river straightening contract made August 8, 
1928, between the City and that company. The 
company's claim to recover was successfully re- 
sisted by this department in the Circuit Court of 
Cook County and in the Appellate Court of Illinois, 
whereupon the Supreme Court of Illinois granted a 
writ of certiorari to review the case. On June 22, 
1933, the Supreme Court reversed the judgments of 
both' lower courts and entered judgment against the 
City in the Supreme Court for $150,000.00 and 
costs. The Supreme Court in its opinion held that 
the Great Lakes Company was entitled to recover 
under a supplemental contract with the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works and that by accepting the 
■ new channel the City was estopped from asserting 
lack of authority on the part of the Commissioner 
to bind the City for the temporary work and 
• structures the cost of which formed the basis of 
the claim. We then filed in the Supreme Court a 
petition for rehearing which resulted in the court's 
filing on October 12, 1933, a modified opinion. The 
modified opinion abandoned the supplemental con- 
tract theory and held that the company was en- 
titled to recover under the provisions of the main 
contract between the parties. We then attempted 
to induce the court to receive a second petition 
for rehearing in which we urged, as we had already 
done in our original brief, that the terms of the 
main contract did not support plaintiff's claim. On 
December 7, 1933, by an order entered in the 



Supreme Court, our ' motion for leave to file the 
second petition was denied. The judgment against

the exception of Refunding Bonds of 1932, Nos. 999 
to 1998. inclusive, $1,000,000.00, which bonds were 
included in the 1931 tax levy for bonds and interest 
on bonds i, were included in the ordinance of the 
City of Chicago providing for the levy of taxes for 
the year 1932 for Bonds and Interest on Bonds; and 

Whereas. The reason for issuing the Refunding 
Bonds of 1934, Series "A", "B", "G", "D" and "E", 
is for the purpose of providing cash on January l! 
1934. to meet the maturing bonds above described 
or to exchange such Refunding Bonds, par for par, 
for such maturing bonds, for the reason that the 
taxes levied by the City of Chicago for the year 
1932 for Bonds and Interest on Bonds have not as 
yet been extended or collected, such delay of ex- 
tension and collection having been primarily caused ' 
by 'a reassessment of property in Cook County in 
1928, and 

Whereas, There have been tax levies included in 
the ordinances for the issuance of Refunding Bonds 
of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C", "D" and "E", and such 
tax levies, in accordance with the requirements of 
the law, have been certified to the County Clerk 
for extension, in accordance with the following

and 

Whereas, If there had been no delay in the ex- 
tension and collection of 1932 taxes for bonds and 
interest on bonds in Cook County and the City of 
Chicago, there would have been sufficient moneys 
on hand to meet and pay the obligation of the princi- 
pal on the maturing bonds above described; and 

Whereas, The issuance of Refunding Bonds of 
1934, Series "A", "B", "C", "D" and "E", when sold 
or exchanged, will divert this obligation from the 
taxpayers of 1932 to the taxpayers of 1934 to 1938, 
inclusive; and 

Whereas, It has been found necessary to issue 
the Refunding Bonds of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C", 
"D" and "E", at a higher rate of interest, namely^ 
51/2 per cent, instead of 4 per cent and 5 per 
cent as was required to be paid on the maturing 
bonds that are refunded, which increased rate of 
interest was necessary to meet the market condi- 
tions prevailing at the time of the issuance of the 
Refunding Bonds of 1934, and 

Whereas, It was necessary to issue the Refund- 
ing Bonds of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C", "D" and 
"E", solely for the purposes of either having cash 
on hand in the City Treasury on January 1, 1934, to 
meet the obligation of maturing bonds, or to effect 
exchange of the Refunding Bonds for the maturing 
bonds in order to avoid default and the serious im- 
pairment of the credit of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, It was the intent of the City Council, 
at the time of its authorization of issuance of the 
Refunding Bonds of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C", "D" 
and "E", at the higher rate of interest, solely to 
either provide the cash to pay the maturing bonds 
due January 1, 1934, or to effect the exchange of 
the Refunding Bonds for the maturing bonds that 
were payable on January 1, 1934, so as to avoid de- 
fault and serious impairment of credit standing of 
the City of Chicago, and the City Council caused 
such Refunding Bonds of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C",

"D" and "E", to be issued as callable bonds, redeem- 
able on any subsequent interest date at par plus 
accrued interest; and 

Whereas, It was the further intent of the City 
Council that the portion of the City of Chicago taxes 
levied for the year 1932 for Bonds and Interest on 
Bonds applicable to payment of principal of matur- 
ing bonds due January 1, 1934, which are refunded 
by the Refunding Bonds of 1934, should be extended 
and placed into collestion, along with the other legal 
levies of 1932 and when such taxes are collected and 
received by the City Treasurer of the City of Chi- 
cago such portion should be set aside and used solely 
for the purpose of redeeming the Refunding Bonds 
of 1934, Series "A", "B", "C", "D" and "E", as the 
amount of such collections so permitted, in order to 
reduce subsequent taxes to be paid by the taxpayers 
obligated to pay taxes levied for the years 1934 to 



1938, inclusive, but retaining the obligation of pay- 
ing the principal on maturing bonds due January 1, 
1934, as the obligation of the taxpayers paying taxes 
for the year 1932, as was in the first instance in- 
tended by the ordinances under which such maturing 
bonds were originally authorized; now, therefore, 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the City Comptroller be and he 
is hereby authorized and directed to set aside in a 
fund to be known as "1934 Refunding Bonds Re- 
demption Eund" all tax monies that may be received 
from time to time, from the County Collector on 
account of that portion of the City of Chicago 1932 
taxes levied for the payment of bonds and interest 
on bonds which is applicable to the payment of the 
principal on the following described bonds:

I»roposed Modernization of the Election Laws, Etc. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, presented the 
following resolution: 

Whereas, Many of the elections laws of this State 
affecting Ihe City of Chicago and County of Cook 
relative to the counting of ballots and the conduct of 
elections have been in force for many years, some 
as early as the year 1872; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has progressed and 
grown by leaps and bounds in population and in- 
habited territory to such an extent that the election 
legislation on the statute books today is inadequate 



to cope with a city the size of the metropolitan area 
of Chicago, particularly with respect to the counting 
and tabulation of the votes cast; and 

Whereas, It has been recently disclosed that 
various inaccuracies and errors and irregularities 
have been made in the tabulation of votes cast, by 
judges and clerks of election, which may be 
attributed to the following among other reasons : 

(a) The large number of voters in a precinct, 
many exceeding 600. 

(b) The enormous size of the ballot voted upon, 
many of which contain the names of 400 candi- 
dates for various offices. 

(c) The large number of different ballots and 
propositions to be voted upon at the average 
election. 

(d) The Judges and Clerks of Election working 
from 5:30 A. M. on election day until the com- 
pletion of the tabulation of votes, which results 
in innumerable instances in the officials' workmg 
until 3 and 4 and 5 o'clock the day after election 
'without sleep, rest, or any intermission, which 
they are required to do under the present law; 

and 

Whereas, The foregoing and other conditions re- 
quire election officials to perform their duties under 
inhuman and intolerable conditions not anticipated 
when the present statutes with respect to the count- 
ing and tabulation of ballots were placed on the 
statute books; and 

Whereas, In the interest of clean elections and 
the accurate tabulation of the votes cast for all can- 
didates and propositions and in the interest of a 
recodification of election laws suitable to the present 
day size of this metropolis; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Honorable Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor of the City of Chicago do designate and 
appoint a committee composed of citizens interested 
in the cause and promotion of honest elections, to 
prepare such legislation as may be necessary to 
modernize the election laws and to eliminate the 
many inconsistencies that exist in the present laws 
and to promote such legislation as will carry out 
the purposes of this resolution, and that Edward J. 
Kelly, Mayor of the City of Chicago, be further 
authorized to request Honorable Henry Horner, 
Governor of the State of Illinois, to incorporate m a 
call for a special session of the Legislature the sub- 
ject of elections. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Bowler moved to adopt the resolution. 
The motion prevailed.

the issuance and sale in lieu of said original war- 
rants of a like principal amount of new warrants

same taxes as such original warrants were issued, 
such new warrants to bear such rate of interest, be 
of such denomination and be dated subsequent to 
the date of such original warrants, all as may be 
prescribed by the ordinance authorizing the new 
warrants; now, therefore

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



December 20, 1933, 



Chicago, December 20, 1933. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was re- 
ferred (December 12, 1933, page 1242) a communi- 
cation from the Corporation Counsel in re decision 
of the Sunreme Court in the case of the Great Lakes

herewith, be published, and that all matters be 
placed on file. 

(This recommendation was concurred in by 
twenty-three members of the committee, with no

Respectfully submitted, 

John S. Clark, 

Chairman. 



Alderman Clark moved to concur in said report. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the opinion submitted with the fore- 
going report: 

In the Supreme Court, State of Illinois. 
GREAT i^KES DREDGE & DOCK CO., a Corporation, 
vs. 

CITY OP CHICAGO, a Municipal Corporation. 
Mr. Justice Shaw, dissenting : 

It will be noted that the contract upon which re- 
covery is sought in this case contains two clauses 
which must be construed together and neither one 
of which may be ignored. These clauses are as 
follows : 

"The right is reserved to the City of Chicago, 
through its Commissioner of Public Works, to 
make alterations in the plans or specifications for 
the work included herein. Should it become 
proper or necessary, however, in the execution of 
the work, to make any alterations which will in- 
crease the expense, said Commissioner of Public 
Works shall report to the City Council the nature 
of such alterations and his estimate of the amount 
by which the expense to the City should be thereby 
increased. The amount by which the contract 
price shall be increased in consequence of such 
alterations shall be determined by the City 
Council." 

"It is expressly understood and agreed that no 
payment shall be made to said party of the first 
part for any extra work or material or of any 
greater amount of money than is herein stipulated 
to be paid, unless some changes in or additions to 
the contract requiring additional outlay by said 
party of the first part shall first have been ex- 
pressly authorized by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago and ordered in writing by said Com- 
missioner of Public Works." 

The first clause, which reserves the right to the 
City to make alterations, applies specifically to "plans 
or specifications for the work included herein' . _ It 
cannot be applied to any other work than that in- 
cluded in the plans and specifications without con- 



struing something into the contract which is not 
written there. It then goes on to provide that m the 
event of alterations being necessary the matter should 
be reported to the City Council, and the following 
clause provides quite definitely and specifically that 
no changes or additions shall impose further lia- 
bility upon the City unless expressly authorized by 
the City Council. The opinion of the majority seems 
to ignore the plain intent and meaning of these two 
clauses in the contract and proceeds to fix liability 
upon the City upon a basis of unit prices set forth 
in Clause "0" of the contract. There are several 
reasons why this should not be done. In the first 
place. Clause "0" is limited by its own terms to 
work covered by the specifications, and, as above 
pointed out, this work is not within the specifi- 
cations. In the second place, the bill of particulars 
on file discloses that there were materials to the 
extent of $147,727.77 put into the Roosevelt Road 
Dam and the Thirteenth Street Dam which are not 
specifically covered by any sub-paragraph of Clause 
"0". These items consist of steel sheeting, excavat- 
ing and dredging. This construction is further re- 
futed by the theory upon which the case was tried— 
i e a theory of the making of a separate and dis- 
tinct ancillary contract, which it was clearly beyond 
the power of the Commissioner of Public Works to 
make. This theory was carried not only through the 
trial iDut through the original opinion of this court 
filed herein prior to the petition for rehearing. The 
attorney for the plaintiff in the trial court m his 
opening statement announced the intention to re- 
cover upon a separate contract. It is also apparent 
from the method of bookkeeping and settlement be- 
tween the parties that a separate contract was in- 
tended, because none of this work was charged or 
paid for in connection with the main contract but 
all of it was itemized and set up in a separate and 
distinct account. 

It is my opinion that a harassed and bewildered 
City Council may well inquire of us as to where and 
in what language it may seek for safety for the tax- 
payers' money in the making of public contracts ii 
provisions as plain and free from ambiguity as those 
in this contract are to be overlooked or so construed 
as to impose an added liability. In fact, it might well 
. be feared that this opinion will incite some mmds 
to exercise ingenuity so as to leave such possibilities 
open under future contracts. 

Mr. Justice DeYoung, also dissenting.

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: ' 

Gentlemen— For the purpose of placing the 
oihce of Deputy Commissioner of Public Works 
under the civil service, I have caused an ordinance 
to be prepared amending Section 175 of the Revised 
Chicago Code of 1931 in such a way as to take 
out the provision requiring the said officer to be 
appointed by the Mayor with the advice and con- 
sent of the City Council and substituting in lieu 
thereof a provision that he is to be appointed by 
the Commissioner of Public Works according to 
law. This will effect the desired result of placing 
the position under the civil service. While it is 
possible that such change could be made lawfully 
at any time, I am advised by the Corporation 
Counsel that it would avoid possible complications 
if it were done before the end of the fiscal year. 

I therefore submit the draft of the said ordi- 
nance herewith for the consideration of your 
honorable body. 

Yours truly, 
(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
the ordinance submitted with the foregoing communi- 
cation without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Clark moved to pass said ordinance. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin, Dawson, Jackson, Cronson, Cusack,

tion, submitted by the Chicago Aero Commission, which 
was referred to the Committee on Recreation and Avi- 
ation: 

Chicago Aero Commission,)^ 
Chicago, December 20, 1933.| ' 

To His Honor the Mayor and the Common Council, 
City of Chicago: 

The Chicago Aero Commission at the second 
special meeting called to discuss the proposed 
•'Chicago Airport" to be located between 26th 
and 39th streets, Indiana avenue and Lake Park 
Way. received a report for the Sub-Committee 
which had been appointed to investigate the sug- 
gested airport, at its meeting held at 12:30 P. M 
December 19th. Based upon the report and the 
discussion thereon, the following resolution was 
passed unanimously: 

"Be it Resolved, That the Chicago Aero Com- 
mission does not recommend or approve the 
proposed "Chicago Airport" to be located be- 
tween 26th and 39th streets, Indiana avenue and 
Lake Park Way, for the following reasons: 

a. It is felt that, from the aviation stand- 
point, the proposed tract would not be the 
equal of the proposed Lake Front Airport 
to be located further North. 

b. It is felt that the location of an airport 
on the proposed site would seriously hinder, 
if not actually prevent, the creation of the 
Lake lYont Airport for which we have all so 
conscientiously worked for such a long period. 

be it further 

Resolved, That you be urged to concentrate 
all interest and activity possible in bringing to 
completion the plans approved so often for the 
Lake Front Airport." 

Respectfully submitted,

December 20, 1933, at the Chicago Stadium be- 
lore a vast assemblage of Chicagoans, who filled 
every portion of that great structure which houses 
thousands; and 

Whereas, The great stage and radio spectacle 
there presented sounded a new and pioneer note 
m the field of Yuletide ventures in the history 
of America; and 

Whereas, Such distinguished nationally known 
musical organizations as the Chicago Symphony 
Orchestra, Paulist Choir, Mundy Singers, and other 
vast assemblages of great artists gave gratuitously 
of their genius to help bring Christmas happiness 
and cheer to thousands of Chicago's boys and girls 
who ordinarily have nothing to be thankful for 
during the Holiday Season; and 

Whereas, The tremendous undertaking spon- 
sored by Chicago's Own Xmas Benefit showed to 
the world that Chicago is a great metropolitan 
center with a great human heart, interested in 
the alleviation of misery and unhappiness, and 
again demonstrated the indomitable spirit of Chi- 
cago's "I WILL" determination to be the foremost 
city in America; and 

Whereas, Chicago's Own Xmas Benefit theatrical 
performance is a step along the same splendid 
road taken by the Century of Progress; and 

Whereas, This unprecedented' humanitarian ef- 
tort would have been impossible without the full 
co-operation of the great artists of the radio 
stage and screen, the various theatrical groups,' 
crafts and union labor organizations, prominent 
civic leaders, business men and women, as well as 
the entire metropolitan press of Chicago, who so 
generously and gratuitously assisted; be it hereby 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby express to the following, who ap- 
peared as artists in the actual performance, its 
full appreciation of their great contribution:

Gentle-aten— The above entitled cause is an in- 



junction suit brought to restrain the City, the Mayor, 
the Commissioner of Public Works and the Com- 
missioner of Police from removing four driveways 
to the filling station premises of complainant situ- 
ated at the southeast corner of W. North avenue and 
N. Laramie avenue. The driveways were built under 
a permit numbered X-17730', issued by the Depart- 
ment of Public Works October 26, 1932. A Council 
order had not been issued prior to the date of the 
permit nor was such order obtained thereafter. On 
May 15, 1933, your honorable body passed an order 
directing the Commissioner of Public Works "to 
restore the curb line and obstruct all driveways at 
the southeast corner of Laramie and North ave- 
nues". (C. J. May 15, 1933, p. 192.) Subsequently, 
and on June 14, 1933, the Commissioner of Public 
Works was directed "to revoke the permit heretofore 
issued to W. C. Rudolph for the construction and 
maintenance of four driveways at the southeast 
corner of North Laramie and W. North avenues". 
(C. J., p. 404.) Pursuant to the last-mentioned order 
the Commissioner of Public Works notified com- 
plainant that the permit issued October 26, 1932, was 
revoked and to remove the driveways in question.

23rd Wards, which was ordered published and referred 
to the Committee on Health: 

We, The citizens and tax-payers of the 22nd and 
'^Srd Wards of the City of Chicago, Illinois, assembled 
at a meeting called by the Tax-payers Association 
of the 22nd and 23rd Wards and held on the 10th 
day of the month of December, 1933, at Mr. R. 
Styblo's Hall, 27th street and Turner avenue, after 
hearing several complaints from citizens and tax- 
payers on the everlasting discard of the chemicals, 
gases and smoke from the Commonwealth Edison 
Co. power house and the Public Service Co. near 
Crawford avenue, and the Drainage Canals, accepted 
the following resolution: 

Because, In the past there was no attention given 
to the steady complaints of the citizens and the tax- 
payers of Wards 22 and 23 and the Health Depart- 
ment of the City of Chicago regarding these dis- 
cards from the said companies; 
. Because, These smelly gases from the premises 
of the said companies, threaten the health of the 
citizens of the 22nd and 23rd Wards and make sleep 
almost impossible during nights and ruin lawns and 
paints on houses as well; 

Because, For this reason the tenants of these 
two wards leave and move away into other parts 
of the City or leave the .City of Chicago and the 
house owners are thus way short on the income from 
payments of rent and the tax burden becomes much 
lieavier even in most cases payments of the tax are 
impossible. Account of this the prices of houses are 
lower every day, but the high taxes remain same 
and for this reason unfair to the house owners of 
Wards 22 and 23. 

We, Therefore request of the Honorable Mayor 
Edward J. Kelly and the City Council that steps 
should be taken in removing this unhealthy dis- 
card which endanger the very lives, health and 
properties of citizens and tax-payers of our wards. 

The citizens after accepting this resolution unani- 
mously authorize the Tax-Payers Association of 
Wards 22 and 23 to send this resolution to the 
'Mayor, City Council, and Health Department of the 
City of Chicago, Illinois, as well as to all news- 
papers of Chicago.

mg a gasoline filling station; that in the block

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Wherk^s, On November 20, 1933, the Board of 
Appeals adopted the following resolution: 

"Whereas, M. Holmstrom, for Joe Marker 
owmer, filed, October 13, 1933, an application 
under the zonmg ordinance to permit, in a Com- 
mercial District nearer than 125 feet to an 
Apartment District, the establishment and ope- 
ration of a milk distributing plant, on premises 
at 4508 Montrose avenue; and 

Whereas, The Commissioner of Buildings on 
October 11, 1933, in acting upon the said appli- 
cation rendered the following decision: 

Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of 
zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, A public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on October 30, 1933, after due 
public notice thereof; and 

Whereas, The proposed improvement is to be 
located in a Commercial District nearer than 125 
feet to an Apartment District and would violate 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that m this case the premises are located across 
the street from a block in which the limitations 
provided by Section 10 do not apply and that 
there are similar non-conforming uses in the 
neighborhood and that the applicant has sub- 
stantiated the basis of his application under Sec- 
tion 28, paragraph (6) of the zoning ordinance 
and should be granted relief on the ground of 
particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance on con- 
dition that all permits necessary for the establish- 
ment of the proposed use shall be obtained within 
three months and all work completed within six 
months after the passage of an ordinance by the 
City Council as recommended herein, and that 
plans in triplicate shall be approved by the Board 
of Appeals before a permit is issued herein; and 

Where-as, The Board of Appeals finds as a fact 
that the premises are located directly across the 
street from a block in which the limitations 



provided by Section 10 do not apply and that 

there are similar non-conforming uses in the 
neighborhood and that the variation may be made 
consistently with the spirit of the general zoning 
plan and in harmony with the intent and pur- 
pose of the zoning regulations and would not be 
detrimental to the. public welfare safety or 
health, 

Resolved, That the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does herebv 
recommend that the City Council enact the fol- 
lowing ordinance:

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



January 10, 1934. 



Council, some may contend that the personal life 
and actions of an alderman are no busmess of the 
City Council. 

I believe, however, that the City Council and the 
public of Chicago have a right to know the facts 
when a member of this Council is under indictment 
for a violation of law, despite the fact that such 
charges do not involve any official action of such 
member. 

On July 27th last, while this Council was in sum- 
mer recess, the Cook County Grand Jury voted an 
indictment against me, Oscar F. Nelson. The press 
of Chicago and the newspapers throughout the na- 
tion carried the news that Oscar F. Nelson, a member 
of the City Council of Chicago, had been indicted 
on a charge of conspiracy to fix prices in certain in- 
dustries. . . * 
I feel that you, Mr. Mayor, and you, my colleagues 
in this City Council, are entitled to a statement 
from me as to these charges. I would have spoken 
before this time, had I not been advised that the 
indictment would be disposed of before now. 

Before I discuss the charges, permit me, briefly, 
for the information of the new members of this 
City Council, to cite my record of public service. 

I have served 11 years as a member of this City 
Council. 

I served the Federal Government as a United 
States Commissioner of Conciliation for six years— 
from 1917 to 1923— by appointment of Presidents 
Wilson and Harding. In that service, during the 
war period and the reconstruction period following, 
I was engaged in the work of adjusting strike situa- 
tions and preventing strikes. 

1 conciliated differences between employer and 
employee and prevented strikes in some of the mam 
industries of the nation, during the war' period. 

Following the war period, when there was an 
epidemic of labor troubles and strikes, I f"^, 
that my record was second to none m adjusting those 
controversies. 

I settled the strike in the cigar and tobacco in- 
dustry which had the island of Porto Rico tied up 
in 1919 I helped adjust the strike of the shop 
workers on the railroads and in the packing in- 
dustry where Judge Samuel Alschuler was the ar- 
bitrator, during 1920 and 1921. 

Prior to the war period— from 1913 to 1917—1 
served under Governor Edward F. Dunne as a mem- 
ber of his cabinet, as Chief State Factory Inspector, 
when that was a separate department of the state 
government. 

From 1910 to 1913, I was the national president 
of the National Federation of Post Office Clerks, ap- 
pearing many times before Congress, and was in- 
strumental in having enacted the Eight Hour law, 
salary classification and compensation for injury 
laws for the post office workers of this nation. 

For 25 years my official actions and my private 
life have been subject to the closest public scrutiny. 

In the field of politics, I have been engaged, like 
others, in bitter political fights or campaigns. At 
,no time, however, has anyone ever attacked my in- 
tegrity or questioned my motives. 

I have been engaged in the practice of law since 
1923 and most of my clients are labor unions and 
their members. I am a member of the Chicago Bar 
Association, and at no time during my entire prac- 
tice, have I ever been criticised for an unethical 
action. 



With my good wife, I have helped rear a family 
of three children; a daughter 23 years of age, an- 
other 21 years of age, and a son 14 years of age. 

Today, as I approach the age of 50 years, after a 
quarter of a century of public service, my political 
enemies and those who seek to destroy the public 
career of one who reflects Labor's views, and one 
who attempts to champion Labor's cause, have 
brought about my indictment on a charge of con- 
spiracy. 

I am charged with conspiracy, together with 23 
others; among them are a professor of the University 
of Chicago and two other lawyers, representing 
trade associations. Among the other defendants are 
—the President of the Laundry Owners Association, 
the President of the Soft Drink Beverage Manufac- 
turers Association, the President of the Master Dyers 
and Gleaners Association, the officers of several 
unions and then— for publicity purposes and m an 
effort to besmirch other defendants— the notorious 
gangster, Al Capone, is included in the indictment. 
• I have never had any dealings with Al Capone. I 
met him but once in my life, and then un-expectedly 
in the office of the former Attorney- General of Illi- 
nois, Edward J. Brundage. 

Al Capone has been under lock and key since 
October 1931, and according to law, will be safely 
incarcerated in the Federal Penitentiary for at least 
another 6 years. There could be no other purpose 
on the part of the manipulators behind this prosecu- 
tion, to include Al Capone in an indictment other 
than to cast reflection on myself and other delend- 
ants and to use Capone for 'stage scenery. The 
government of the United States evidently recog- 
nized that fact, and properly refused to permit the 
. return of Al Capone for merely publicity purposes. 
I never knew more than 11 of the 24 defendants, 
until I met them in court. Each day now, how- 
ever the newspapers refer to this conspiracy case 
with the statement: "Alderman Oscar F. Nelson 
and 18 others." 

I want to say to you members of the City Council 
and to the public of Chicago, because I believe you 
have a right to know, that I have never participated 
in any manner, shape or form with the fixing oi 
prices of any commodity. I also want to say to 
you, emphatically, that I am innocent of any viola- 
tion of any law. 

My only connection with this entire matter is 
confined to my duties as a practicing lawyer. The 
law firm of which I am the senior member. Nelson 
& Ricker, are the attorneys of the Laundry Drivers 
Union, Local 712. 

My client the Laundry Drivers, presented an 
agreement to me, which had been drawn as a result 
of negotiations between the Laundry Owners and 
the Drivers Union officials, and I was asked to 
render a legal opinion on that agreement. 

I did render an opinion to the effect that in my 
judgment as a lawyer, such agreement was lawful. 
I appeared before the union meeting and explained 
that agreement, when there were more than 1,100 
members in attendance. 

My clients, the Laundry Drivers Union, then in- 
structed me to appear before a meetmg of the 
Laundry Owners Association. I carried out those 
instructions, and made a talk, explaining the agree- 
ment, at a meeting in the Palmer House, where 
some 500 laundry owners were in attendance, ana 
several newspaper men were present.

comlmunications, etc. 



This IS the sum and substance of my connection 
Mth price fixing. If this is oonspiracy— for a 
awyer to render, according to his best thought a 
legal opmion to his clients, and (o present that lekal 

STAnn ^■^^'^ ^"^e^s some 

400 or 500 laundry owners in the presence of news- 
paper reporters— then the practice of law in this 
community has indeed become perilous. 

I mentioned before in this statement that there 
are those who seek fo destroy the public career of 
one who reflects Labor's views and attempts as best 
he can to champion Labor's cause. 

There is in this City an association known as the 
Chicago Employers Association. It is in no wise 
connected with the Association of Commerce The 
boss and guidmg hand of that association is a man 
by the name of Hostetter.
